Testimonials from some of my past pupils

Passed 1st time
I started driving when I was 17 (5 years ago) with another instructor and failed my test a number of times due to my nerves always getting the better of me. I started driving with Kevin and booked an intensive course. Within the first day my nerves were calmed and after a few days, for the first time I felt ready to take my test. Although I was nervous, Kevin taught me to be an almost perfect driver not just how to pass the test. I passed first time with Kevin with just one driving fault. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone who has confidence issues as he really put me at ease and am now loving driving! Thank you Kevin I owe it all to you!

I would recommend Kevin to anyone who is wishing to learn to drive, very good driving instructor who is very determined to get you that first time pass, also he is a top man and incredible kind and will help you out as much as he can 5 star rating all the way.

I would highly recommend Kevin, he was very patient with me as I was not a confident driver, but he took his time and effort to help me build up my confidence and driving skills.

He was very patient with me, as I was very worried about driving at first, but through hard work and determination Kevin helped me calm my nerves, and progress my skills as a driver, enabling me to pass my driving test with only 4 minor faults.

I couldn’t thank Kevin enough helping me get through my lessons/tests and improving me as a driving by keeping me calm and being a great friend!

If you’re looking for a patient and competent driving instructor, and a great friend then Kevin is your man.

span>As the youngest out of three children my parents made a big decision going with someone that they didn’t know. We heard of Kevin through family friends who have had him before and said he was the best instructor they tried. I could not agree more! He is one of the best at his job. He knows what he is talking about as well as being able to stay calm not once did he shout or show signs of stress. He is so friendly as well. He will get to know you throughout the lessons as well as making a bond with your family so they know how things are going from his perspective. He will not rush you in to anything that he thinks your not ready for and will try his hardest to get you ready for your test. I would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a driving instructor as he is one of the best out there.

First time passKevin, Thank you so much for everything!!!
Kevin, Thank you so much for everything!!!

Kevin is a calm, reassuring and patient instructor and I would highly recommend him to anybody learning to drive. I chose to do the intensive driving course as I wanted to pass over the school holidays and I found that Kevin was very encouraging and supportive whenever I was lacking in self confidence. My favourite thing about Kevin is that he was always up for a chat which made driving much more enjoyable! Kevin not only taught me how to drive but he was immaculate when preparing me for my driving test and due to his precision I passed with no driving faults!!

Thank you so so much again I could not have done it without you

Kevin is a first class instructor. I found him last year when I needed some top-up lessons for one of my grandchildren, who was not making progress with his driving. He had him up and qualified within about ten weeks. So, having another grandchild who desperately wanted to be able to drive whilst suffering from a number of problems, I turned again to Kevin and explained what I needed.

Out came the miracle dust once more, and today I have another qualified driver; he passed and is so chuffed. Again, it has only taken about three months, and it is a first time pass. I gather that Kevin has a large percentage of students passing first time.

Kevin's ability to calm nerves, deal with anxieties and get youngsters through their test in wonderful to see. I say youngsters, as I only have experience of them, although I imagine his skill covers all ages. I really recommend Kevin as a skilled, experienced and helpful driving instructor.

Before my first lesson with Kevin I hadn't been out in the car for over 4 years due to a bad experience, not even as a passenger. I was struggling massively with anxiety about getting back out on the road and was worried that the instructor I chose wouldn't understand or be willing to take the lessons at my pace and might try to push me or rigidly follow a lesson structure. I was recommended to try Kevin as he had taught my cousin who was having a few issues and Kevin got him through his test first time. Speaking to Kevin to explain my situation, he made it clear that we will only ever do what I'm happy to do and we can push my boundaries at my own pace, when I'm comfortable to do so.

Fast forward to the first lesson, 20 minutes in and I'm already driving along and having a normal driving lesson as if there was no anxiety! Kevin has been absolutely brilliant; he's kind, relatable, chatty but able to stay focused on the lesson, punctual, knowledgeable, relaxed and all round an exceptional instructor. He never made me feel bad for making mistakes or getting things wrong, never pressured me to do something I didn't feel ready to do and always encouraged and supported me. I honestly don't believe I would have made it through so many lessons let alone pass my test first time with any other instructor. I am genuinely a little bit sad that we won't be having any more lessons but I will be forever grateful to what Kevin has helped me achieve.

I hadn't taken my son out of our home town since he was a baby and the incident occured 4 years ago. He's now nearing 5 years old and I can't wait to make up for the years I lost. Thanks so much for the past 3 months Kevin, I'm now looking forward to what lays in my future in ways I haven't for nearly a decade.

Kevin was an amazing instructor, who I would highly recommend. I didn’t have the easiest time this summer whilst learning however Kevin was very understanding about it and was very patient with me. He never put pressure on me, and allowed me to take my time, to make mistakes so I could learn from them. His knowledge of what examiners are looking for, from his prior experience of as a driving examiner, is amazing and definitely a confidence booster. I cannot thank Kevin enough.

I did an intensive course with Kevin and I’ve had a couple of instructors before but Kevin is definitely the best driving instructor I’ve had. He was so calm and patient and gave me confidence in my driving as well as making it enjoyable! He was very understanding and I couldn’t have done it without him. I would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone looking for lessons. Thanks for everything Kevin!

Emily Emily
Kevin was a fantastic instructor. He’s passionate about what he does and really cares about each of this pupils, something that comes across in his approach to teaching. Throughout our lessons he was patient and made the whole process fun. I not only passed but thanks to Kevin found driving enjoyable.

Passed 1st time
I have tried to prepare for my test with a few people, but no one had the patience and kindness that Kevin had. I could not have wished for a better instructor. He's got the knowledge and a great supportive and stress-free teaching style. Kevin made learning fun and I really appreciated that he was always serious about driving but ready for a joke. I was encouraged and gained the confidence I needed to pass my test first time.  I am truly going to recommend Kevins LDC driving school to everyone.

Kevin was an excellent teacher, couldn’t be happier with the end result as I passed the first time. He didn’t rush me into anything and made me begin to gain confidence in myself that I thought would never have while driving as I was a very anxious at the start. The previous instructor that I had was quite intimidating and didn’t really help me improve, whereas Kevin was the completely different; very friendly and never was impatient with me no matter how long I didn’t get something. Thank you for everything, I would recommend him to anyone.

Thanks again for everything!! I couldn't have done it without you 🤗
Kevin has been a true delight from start to finish. He puts you at complete ease and brings out the very best in you. You will be guaranteed a good giggle along the way! Best instructor I could have ever asked for!

Kevin White is a phenomenal instructor. I was involved in an accident as a passenger 3 years ago and have had a real fear of the road since then. Kevin managed to coach me back to the confidence I had before- and I was able to pass my test first try. His attention to detail is impeccable, his experience as an examiner means that he teaches you exactly what you need to do to be a success. In just a few short weeks, I went from nervous student, to believing I could ace a driving test. Thank you Kevin.

I would highly recommend Kevin for anyone who is searching for an instructor. Kevin is an awesome teacher, not only is he extremely patient but also proficient. He is calm and will make the lessons fun which helps to take any nerves away. He also explains important points clearly and concisely, so near the end you will be almost “teaching” yourself to drive.

I just want to say on behalf of myself and my mum Jo, a massive "thank you" in providing such excellent coaching and driving instruction that enabled me to pass my test at my first attempt. We are both well chuffed with that result!!

You made my lessons entertaining, I struck a connection with you that i didn't have with a previous instructor and you instilled confidence in my ability. I did not feel worried about asking you any questions about driving ahead of my test and at the end of each lesson you always gave me a good and constructive debrief. This was readily apparent when i began driving for additional practice with my mum sat beside me, as we spent more time chatting, than her having to give me instruction. Thank you again - I thoroughly recommend you and LDC. For the record, both my sisters also passed first time with LDC. Win win!!

From Jo: Kevin, you instilled a confidence in my shy young son and before i knew it he was criticizing my driving and telling me stuff i never knew😊. I feel thoroughly lost now he has passed his test and has gained momentus independence from me.

Kevin was a great driving instructor and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I did 30 hours in a month and passed first time. He was patient, calm but enthusiastic about the whole learning experience. He makes you feel at ease and relaxed. We always had fun during lessons whilst staying highly professional and made sure we kept on track with my learning. After having a quite a nervous start to driving, he made sure I always felt supported and safe. Amazing at what he does! Thank you again to Kevin for all the support over the past month.

Kevin has now successfully taught two of my daughters to drive. He did such a great job when teaching Amber we didn’t hesitate to use him a second time. Once again Kevin has been incredible. He has supported and encouraged Maddie every inch of the way. She loved going on her driving lessons and has picked things up very quickly due to Kevin’s excellent teaching style. Kevin is always polite and punctual, he fits in lessons around college times and is always very accommodating. Kevin always kept us informed of Maddie ‘s progress. We will definitely use Kevin again when my 3rd daughter learns to drive (only 6 years away!) Thanks for everything.

We would like to thank Kevin for helping our daughter Aimee pass her driving test. Aimee started driving lessons with Kevin at the end of October shortly after her 17th birthday. Aimee has really enjoyed learning to drive with Kevin due to his calm, patient and encouraging manner and also his great sense of humour, which has helped build her confidence and put her at ease. She valued his honesty and feedback and he kept us up to date with her progress. Kevin is always, polite, professional and highly motivated and a very competent teacher.

We would highly recommend Kevin to anyone wanting to learn to drive and will definitely use Kevin to teach our son when he learns to drive.

Warren Fox-ClinchWarren Fox-Clinch
I would certainly recommend Kevin to anyone who wants to pass their driving test.

Kevin makes the experience fun and enjoyable which makes you feel at ease. I would never of passed without Kevin not just a great instructor but an all round top bloke.

Joe GouldJoe Gould
First time pass
I am so proud and happy that my grandson Joe passed his driving test last week, and that it was his first time!

From Joe's initial assessment lesson with Kevin, Kevin was able to explain to Joe why he wasn't so confident in certain driving situations, were as two previous instructors had failed!

Due to Kevin’s patience's, professional manner, brilliant teaching skills, and above all his wonderful sense of humour, he was able to turn a nervous, novice learner into a competent, confident driver in such a short period of time.

Joe and I will always remember that special day that he passed his driving test and are truly grateful that we shared it with you Kevin! Thank you Kevin X

Joe QuantmireJoe Quantmire
Kevin taught my cousin and me to drive. We have both passed the driving test. I am 18 and must admit have had "my moments" - Kevin has showed infinite patience with me and assured me, when I was lacking in confidence, that I was fully capable of passing. Joe

Kevin taught our daughter, Jess, to drive shortly after her 17th birthday. Despite being nervous, Kevin from day one put her at ease and her confidence grew. Jess found the whole experience enjoyable and never held any fear when it came to her driving lessons. This is testimony to Kevin’s expertise and patience. At the outset Kevin met with us and agreed a plan of lessons and this proved to be accurate as she recently passed first time with only 2 driving faults. Thank you so much Kevin! 5 Star Rating🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Congratulations to Kieran on passing your test. Well done.

Thank you LDC Driving School - Kevin White! What an incredible teacher. Got Charlie through his theory and driving test first time. Kevin arrived early each day this week and he gave Charlie the confidence and ability to drive safely and competently - winning combo! Intensive lessons are the way to go - no time to forget things between lessons and safe driving becomes second nature. How would I rate Kevin and the 5gold stars. Susan Fullarton

I cannot thank Kevin enough. As an older student I was nervous about learning something new but he gave me the confidence to become a safe and competent driver. He is always calm and patient throughout lessons. He is personable which made lessons fun rather than a chore. I will be recommending him to friends and family.

Thank you Kevin you have done a wonderful job teaching my Daughter to drive with your patience and encouragement and enthusiasm and being very flexible on driving lessons. Meeting you made us feel very relaxed teaching our Daughter. Can’t believe she passed first time all down to you. Glad we listened to Emily’s friends and got you to teach her. Many many thanks to a great driving instructor.

‪Emily West. Thank you Kevin for making me the confident safe driver I am today. Been driving everywhere since I have passed my test and it’s been incredible. Thank you for all your help.‬

‪Po West. If any parents are looking for a brilliant driving instructor for their children, Kevin's your man. Thank you so very much, Kevin...I have now retired from "Mum's Taxi Service" ‬

First time pass
Due to aspergers and confidence issues I can sometimes struggle to take instructions correctly and therefore learning to drive is something that was somewhat difficult for me. However Kevin couldn't have been more patient and understanding and helped me progress much quicker than I thought possible. Thanks to his amazing teaching I ended up not just passing first time but passing 1st time with no faults, something I never dreamed I would achieve and owe a lot to his instructing.

First time pass
It’s amazing how much you can learn in a week. Before Monday I had had a total of four hours driving experience, but now after completing an LDC intensive driving course with Kevin I am the proud owner of a driving license. I will admit the prospect of an intensive course was nerve racking, but the support provided by LDC was without fault. The ability to ring and be greeted by a friendly voice whenever I had a question, as well as the clear website that provides a great deal of information delivered both confidence in LDC and thrill towards completing the course. As well as this I was given a driving instructor who was both enthusiastic and patient in his teaching. Kevin’s passion towards driving consistently shone through making the experience of an intensive driving course both enjoyable and successful. Therefore, thanks to the service LDC provides and Kevin’s teaching I am someone who enjoys driving and feels confident behind the wheel.

I would definitely recommend prospective learners to undertake an intensive driving course. Not only is it a great way to learn to drive quickly, but it is also the best approach to take when wanting to gain as much experience as possible behind the wheel. Over the course of the week Kevin took me to a variety of different areas whereby I was able to experience the hustle and bustle of busy streets as well as areas where there were twisty country roads as well as the test areas, all of which prepared me to the highest level for my test which I passed first time.

Toby WilliamsToby Williams
Toby switched driving instructors to Kevin White after failing an initial test and Kevin immediately built his driving confidence and in a calm way corrected any issues. Consequently Toby passed his driving test with Kevin and is now enjoying his driving. I will be contacting Kevin regarding my younger sons driving lessons. Debbie Williams

First time pass
Kevin was my second driving instructor, after having a bad experience with my first, Kevin soon took me out and started working on getting rid of my nerves with going into and out of gears as well as higher speeds, within 20 lessons he had managed to work out all the kinks with my driving and I was then ready for my test and Passed first time!

Kevin is a very relaxed driving instructor and will allow you to take your time to build your confidence up, with things that make you nervous or things you’re not sure on; and although he is serious when he needs to be, he also makes the time to put you at ease with a great sense of humour.

I will soon be going back to Kevin for my Motorway Lessons, and I highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to learn how to drive.

Passed 1st time
Hannah had been driving with another instructor for 10 lessons, she felt held back and was lacking in confidence. As soon as she started driving with Kevin her confidence soared and we noticed an immediate increase in her driving ability. Thanks to Kevin, Hannah passed first time and in her target of 3 months. We will definitely be booking Kevin next year for our other daughter!

Josie GelleburnJosie Gelleburn
I was a very nervous driver when I first started lessons. However, Kevin, boosted my confidence massively. He's always calm and patient, and always stretches you in each lesson to ensure your driving to the best of your ability.

We would like to thank Kevin for all of his hard work and patience helping Amber to finally pass her driving test. Amber had previously failed her test with another driving school and her confidence was very low. We decided to switch instructors which was the best decision we could have made. We instantly saw a change in Amber's confidence and her new thought processes whilst driving. Kevin teaches in a way to suit the individual learner and this definitely worked much better for Amber. Kevin is enthusiastic and honest, he always kept us up to date with Ambers progression along the way. We will most certainly be using Kevin for my second daughters lessons which will be starting in November.

Many thanks

Thanks again Kevin for the brilliant instruction! Very engaging lessons that really helped me understand the best techniques to approach driving/learning to drive and improve on what i'd learnt previously. Great instructing style that got me to constantly evaluate what i was or wasnt doing and why. Kevin is also a great guy, very friendly and professional, i'd definitely recommend him!

I'm so happy that I managed to pass my test! It has been a hard process for me as I wasn't very confident to begin with and suffered from a lot of nerves. Kevin helped me so much with concentration and helped me build my confidence with how calm and kind he was. He did a great job teaching me and without him passing my test would have been a much much more difficult prospect. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive, especially if they suffer from the same issues I had at the beginning.

Passed 1st time
I took 8 lessons with Kevin, having driven with my dad for 6 months. Kevin made me calm and confident in my abilities. He explains the reason for every instruction which helped me learn fast. Would highly recommend Kevin and thanks to him, I passed first time. I also found the LDC method very helpful in learning to drive.

I had been struggling to choose a driving instructor, its difficult when you're young to decide who to choose. I knew I'd made an excellent choice with Kevin as soon as I met him. He explained the whole process clearly and we had a laugh. I'd really recommend choosing him , he was so helpful and patient. I really didn't think I'd pass so quickly, and feel so confident after passing my test.

Passed 1st time
I did a Semi-intensive course with Kevin and from the very start I felt comfortable and at ease. He gave me confidence in my ability and after 30 hours of lessons, I passed my test first time. I would highly recommend Kevin, and would like to thank him for all the help and support. Thanks again Kevin!

Holly TaylorHolly Taylor
Passed 1st Time
What a delight to train this young lady. Holly was enthusiastic and very pleasant. She was mature beyond her years in how she approached things and had little doubt she would do well on her test. I wish her all the success in her driving pursuits for the future and if she puts the attitude into her life that she showed during listening to how we train with the LDC way she will do extremely well.

Working with Kevin was such a pleasure. I completed a 20 hour intensive course. Before starting this course, I was very tentative as to whether I would be ready for my test as my nerves always got the better of me. After my first lesson with Kevin I immediately felt relieved and confident that I would be ready. His calming and friendly demeanor really helped with my nerves, and I felt relaxed while driving (this was by no means normal). If it wasn't for Kevin, I wouldn't have passed my test in such short time, and with only 3 minor faults! He is an awesome instructor, and would recommend him over anyone.
